About Boston

With its rich history and mass of cultural influences, Boston has something for everyone. Arts, sports, history, architecture and food - its range of sights and sounds are as diverse as it gets. Home to the prestigious Harvard University, Boston boasts a large student population, and the city is also a haven for sports lovers thanks to its world champion teams Patriots and Red Sox.

Boston – the largest city in Massachusetts – is steeped in revolutionary history, which can be explored by following the ‘Freedom Trail’, which takes you from the Boston Common along the 16 sites that earned the city its status as the birthplace of America.

Boston visitors have their pick of a range of accommodation options suitable for every budget. 40 Berkeley, in the city’s trendy South End, is a restored historic building perfect for those travelling on a shoestring, while the Chandler Inn Hotel offers all the amenities, without blowing your budget.

If you do want to splash out, the Millenium Bostonian is located in the city’s oldest block (Blackstone) and has luxury rooms with balconies overlooking Haymarket. Meanwhile, the five star Four Seasons Boston has its own luxury spa and pool, and offers a free transfer service to attractions within two miles of the hotel.

You’re sure to find some treasures to take home with you while you’re in Boston. For someplace a little different, Ward Maps has an incredible collection of original antique and reproduction maps, with a special focus on Boston, Cambridge and Somerville. Grolier is the oldest poetry bookstore in America, with TS Eliot and Allen Ginsberg just two members of literary royalty who have passed through its doors since it opened in 1927.

The daily farmers market at Boston Public Market is on every day and gives shoppers access to a range of fresh food that’s been grown, harvested and produced right there in New England. Those seeking some luxury retail therapy will enjoy the boutiques on Charles Street, Copley Place and Newbury Street, whilst Dollar-a-pound, at Garment District, is fabulous for bargain hunting.

You'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to eating in Boston. Head to the Seaport district to sample the city’s famous seafood, where diners enjoy the local speciality of ‘sacred cod’ whilst overlooking stunning harbour views.

Mexican restaurant Lolita Cocina (271 Dartmouth St) offers up plenty of surprises which have to be seen to believed, as well as no fewer than eight different margaritas on the menu. Brewer's Fork is where you'll find the hipsters hanging out, but its little wonder with their mouth watering menu of wood-fired pizzas and cheese and charcuterie boards. Meanwhile, vegans and vegetarians alike will enjoy the healthy but delicious offerings of Life Alive (765 Massachusetts Ave).
